Preview of Healadin Deluxe

Blizzard has updated their dungeon set viewer. So you can go now and view the Tier 3 Paladin set right now.

The only thing I like about this set is it doesn't say class: paladin.

This will probably be changed in the actual version, but if not I'll be rolling on the warrior set, eventually, if it isn't class-equipable.

Why are they constantly buffing cleanse?

It doesn't say class: paladin because it is gained through a quest.

I pointed this out in the forums and I'll point this out here.

A Paladin with LF will have almost twice the attack power of a Paladin with this set. Add a few trinkets, rings, and a Paladin in LF will beat a Paladin in a T3 set. How does that work?

And that doesn't even discuss whether a Paladin in Soulforge, Freethinker, Judgement, or Avenger will defeat a Paladin in Benediction.

GG Blizz.

I suspect that most Paladins are going to keep Judgement as thier grinding set. The idea of trying to grind on mobs with that set makes me weep. But it's going to truely blow for those who are doing it with that set and no SoC. Get back to me in a week when that even con mob is dead.

One has to wonder what the point of the 10k+ armour value is.

Still, the armour looks like a cross between Battle of the Planets and Macross Mecha. Good job Blizz...

Well, it's probably to make raid gear more raid-centric to help reduce the impact of PvE gear inflation on PvP.

Last poster would make a good point if it were across the board. The fact is, the Mage/Warlock/Hunter/Rogue sets will be just as deadly in PvP as they are effective in PvE. Blizzard is only screwing the classes that play a very narrowed aspect of their class in raiding - Druids/Priests/Paladins/Shamans.

Forgot Warriors in that second group. Their tier 3 is just as pigeonholeing as the Paladin set, focused entirely on the tanking aspect.

Well whose main role in raids is dps? "Mage/Warlock/Hunter/Rogue" Those classes don't really have much else to do. Sure they can maybe cc and pull but that's hard to gear for.

Thats a pretty dopey looking set. Also, I'm not sure why the female has substantially less coverage than the male (its the same for the warrior gear too). Do I really need my midriff exposed?

Yes. You do.

Seriously, I'm not even sure why this set is plate. It's not as though any Paladin wearing this set will be fighting. Make it cloth and save my repair bill.

Seriously, I'm not even touching this set. I'll keep my Judgement set and sit back, collect dkp while my other guildies fight over their Tier3 sets. Blizzard is crazy. They introduce +dam & healing to us in 1.9 and then ingore us. Makes no sense to me.

One other thing, If these are suppose to be raiding sets, Where are the resist's? sigh.....

Nature resists would nerf shaman, thus no resists on our set.
